Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Lusophonic Disappointment of Sciongrad is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.484 billion Scionites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Real. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Scionite economy, worth 575 trillion Shields a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 67,775 Shields, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sciongrad's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Clove.

Sciongrad is ranked 66th in International Democratic Union and 139,124th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
